Kent and I got away for our anniversary last weekend. We didn't travel further than 20 minutes, but it felt like we were miles from home. With no definite plans in mind, we were pleasantly surprised to happen upon this German restaurant. Winzer Stube, open since 1999 by a native German woman, is located in the lower level of the historic Opera house in downtown Hudson.
The walls were lined with postcards from Germany.
A German woman was our server, making the whole experience seem that much more authentic! She brought us this delicious sourdough bread before our meals were ready. It was ever so soft on the inside with a chewy crust on the outside.
German books sat on the shelf by our booth (not that I could read them but it was fun to look at them)
, and the little lamp on our table actually had dried flower petals and leaves on its shade.
Kent ordered all-you-can-eat fish and chips.
I ordered a Reuben because I love them, and never make them at home. It came with a cup of wild rice and chicken soup all for $8. The menu was also fun to read because it told a little about the owner and her family as well as descriptions of the food and their philosophies.
Kids eat free Thursday nights. Certain dishes are 1/2 price on Wednesdays. Appetizers are 1/2 off from
4-6. Winzer Stube was voted the ninth best German restaurant in the United States.
